Hey Lumatic, did you get your dump valve replaced? I noticed that I am having the same problem.

Yeah, if I happen to wake up suddenly, and forget that the bunk is in place, I will nail my head everytime. Makes the kids laugh.

yes, I saw that. If I wasn't already having one made I would have jumped on it.

Sounds like I sold mine too cheap! But the good news is I sold it to a forum member that intended to use it in his trailer, not sell on eBay.

Yeah, You sold it to me


And yes it is still in my Tradewind. I bought the other one mentioned above so I could have 2 for the grandkids. By the way I used ballistic nylon as the fabric. A lot better than canvas.

Glad you (and your grandkids) are enjoying it.
Happy camping...

Sorry I didn't get to post last night, but Army matters took precedence. I have today off, so I snapped as many pictures as I could and measured just about everything I could think of, and here is what I've come up with:

Cables - 32" in length.

Curb-side short frame - 63 7/8"x28"...the aluminum is 1 1/2"hx15/16"w.

Road-side long frame - 72 1/16"x28.

Short Frame holes to hold cables - 3/16" slit, enlarging to 3/8" to accept cable ball end. Holes are 55 7/16" on center from each other. They begin 7/16" from the inside edge of frame.

Long frame holes to hold cables - 63 7/16" on center. Other dimensions same as short frame.

Holes for the pins to secure frame, when in use, are 5/16" diameter. Pins are 1 1/4" long.

Short frame mattress - 60"x24"x2".

Long frame mattress - 70"x24"x2".

Canvas for frame folds over 4 1/2" from outer edge of frame. End flaps are 4 1/8" wide and are 8 3/4" apart from inner edge to inner edge.

Ceiling brackets - 3 1/2" diameter

Short frame brackets - 55 3/8" on center from each other; bracket edge closest to bathroom is 2 1/8" from metal lip, which holds the bathroom wall in place.

Long frame brackets - 64 15/16" on center from each other. Other dimensions are the same.

Tan brackets to hold bunks, when stowed:

15 5/16"x6 1/2"x1 1/4". The end lip, which is folded into a triangle to hold the bunk securely is 13/16". The holes to fasten the bracket to the overhead compartment are 9 3/4" on center.

I used a wood support in the overhead compartment, to distribute the weight evenly. The support is 12"x1 3/8"x 3/4".


I need to resize the pics, but I'll get them posted with some measurements, hopefully today.
